My academic course load is really challenging this semester, but I am really happy with all of my classes. For instance, though I am a Religion major and a Philosophy minor, I registered to take an upper level History seminar on colonial America. It is a subject I wasn’t at all interested in or knew anything about. But all my friends who are History majors told me that Professor Hall was an amazing teacher. Though he was teaching a 100 level class this semester, I decided to take his 300 level seminar with only six other students. There has been tons of reading and writing assignments, but I have fallen in love with the material and the professor. That’s something special about Bates and the liberal arts experience. You don’t have to limit yourself to classes within your major, or even personal interests.
